FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) - The University of Maine at Farmington has cut 18 jobs from its budget, which resulted in three layoffs.

The savings amount to $1.65 million.

The university says the other 15 jobs that were cut were vacant. No departments have been eliminated.

According to a UMF spokeswoman, the university president says the cuts were needed to balance next year’s budget.

The Morning Sentinel reports (https://bit.ly/1orIbDo ) that the layoffs were in admissions, the library and include a retirement in academic affairs.

The university said that it also plans to reduce operations spending by $1.34 million by cutting budgets for supplies and services and postponing capital investments.
